Threat of US Coup Hangs Over South Korean Efforts to Reconcile With North

Though South Korea is able to lift sanctions against North Korea and work with its neighbor to reconnect railways and roads, it must proceed with caution, since US authorities could stage a coup if things don't go their way, author Tim Beal told Sputnik.

Both North and South Korea on Monday agreed to begin reconnecting rail and road links, stating that joint on-site surveys of the South's Gyeongui and Donghae railway lines would begin in late October and early November, respectively. The move is one more step to improving bilateral relations between to two countries.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Any attempt to scuttle this evolving rapprochement by the US government would be stupid, short-sighted, and should be the US's cue for beginning to withdraw its troops from South Korea; unfortunately, just because something is the most ham-fistedly, pig-headedly stupid thing the US government can do, is utterly no guarantee that it won't try to do it.

Khashoggi Family Had Deep Connections to Lockheed Martin, Saudi Power Struggles

Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, who is feared murdered in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, was much more than just a Washington Post columnist: he was a figure connected to some of the highest echelons of power in the US and Saudi Arabia.

Whitney Webb, staff writer at MintPress News and author of a recent piece on the disappeared Saudi journalist, joined Radio Sputnik's Fault Lines on Tuesday to flesh out Khashoggi's personal and family history and his deep connections to the military-industrial complex in the United States, as well as the highest levels of the Saudi state, in an effort to understand why the US is reacting so strongly to his presumed death at Saudi hands.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF this info proves true (and it is going to take a lot of effort, to reconstruct this forensically, if even possible), with no body, then it is possible that Khashoggi was a spook.... for someone, and it is hard for whom at this point.

The evidence is now being managed by the Turkish authorities, and one has to wonder of the hold-up on its release, almost as some kind of blackmail against the Saudi Royal Family, to be "sprung" at the most damaging time.

Or, was his assassination ordered by other members of the House of Saud who felt that Ben Salman had been thrust into power at far too young an age?

But regardless of the motivations driving this abduction/assassination, this has happened at one of the most critical junctures possible for the House of Saud, and the potential for its continued leadership either waxing...or waning, if the outcome was to engineer an unceremonious dumping of Prince Salman under the proverbial bus.

We will see, shortly, where the Saudi military are placing their bets in this poisoned environment of claims, and counterclaims, and this support (or lack thereof) may show us where Saudi Arabia is ultimately headed.

NZ heading for gas supply gap, warns industry executive

New Zealand is heading into a gas supply gap and will need a new discovery to arrest the production decline it is on now, MPs heard yesterday.

The country has just seven years' firm supply, and production is forecast to start falling away from 2021, according to Patrick Teagle, a New Zealand-based executive for Austrian oil and gas company OMV. Teagle was talking to Parliament's environment select committee.

Government MPs didn't appreciate being told the ban would increase emissions rather than reduce them, that the ban had already halted some investment, and that reduced domestic gas supplies would increase electricity costs for all consumers and sacrifice opportunities to reduce coal use and replace higher-emitting imports – like fertiliser – with lower-emission local production.

Maseca Corn Flours Test Positive for Toxic Residues of Monsanto Weedkiller

Organic Consumers Association Mexico (ACO), a project of US-based Organic Consumers Association (OCA), today announced that samples of Maseca brand white and yellow corn flours tested positive for residues of glyphosate and its main metabolite, AMPA. Glyphosate is the active ingredient in Monsanto's Roundup weedkiller.

"It's clear from our testing that Maseca's claims of selling a 'natural' and 'nutritious' product are false and misleading," said OCA's international director, Ronnie Cummins. "Consumers in Mexico and the US who care about pesticide contamination and GMOs should seek organic non-GMO alternatives to Maseca flours until the company agrees to source only non-GMO grains for its products."

US Issues Sanctions Targeting 20 Iranian Entities, Including 4 Banks

Earlier reports stated that on November 4 a new wave of US sanctions will directly hit Iran's oil exports and banking operations and is expected to disconnect the Middle East state from international financial channels.

The US Treasury announced Tuesday that twenty entities, including four banks, will be targeted by new Iran's sanctions.

"This Iran-based network is known as Bonyad Taavon Basij, which is translated as Basij Cooperative Foundation, and is comprised of at least 20 corporations and financial institutions," the release said.

World Finance Leaders Scramble For A Solution To Escalating Trade War, Rising Rates

The main takeaway from the IMF and World Bank Group annual meeting in Bali, which hosted financial ministers and central bank governors from around the world this weekend, was that global trade tensions were having a profound effect on global growth and need to be solved.

Most of the participants - save for China and Mexico - seemed united and in agreement that trade talks have to continue. Bank of Japan Governor Haruhiko Kuroda stated that it was essential to have dialogue on trade while at the same time, the president of Brazil's central bank, Ilan Goldfajn, noted that the trade wars were one of the biggest threats to emerging markets. Indonesia's president Jokowi Widodo said starkly that "winter is coming" for the global economy if there is no solution on trade.

Forget Oil, Here's Saudi Arabia's Other 'Weapons'

There are not one, not two, but three 'weapons' on the "nuclear option" menu for Saudi Arabia to strike back at any US sanctions stemming from its alleged murder and dismemberment of dissident journalist Jamal Khashoggi in what is now being reported as a "botched interrogation."

The first is simple and well known - "oil" - cutting off its own supply "nose" to send prices to $100, $200, or $400 may end up spiting its own face however.

So let's take a look at some other options.

The second, and relatively well known, potential course for retaliation is in its choice of who to buy its weapons from...

Professor Sheds Light on Reasons Behind Haley's Resignation

There is some question as to whether this resignation was all that sudden. The President says that they had discussed her resignation earlier in the year, but that they had waited until now to announce it (after the President's visit to the UN earlier this month).

The average high-level administration appointee serves for about two and a half years. Haley, when she leaves, will have served two years since her appointment. Therefore, her tenure is not all that much out of the norm.

Supreme Court deals final blow to lead paint manufacturers' years-long effort to avoid cleanup costs

American Mercenaries Were Hired To Assassinate Politicians In The Middle East

Cradling an AK-47 and sucking a lollipop, the former American Green Beret bumped along in the back of an armored SUV as it wound through the darkened streets of Aden. Two other commandos on the mission were former Navy SEALs. As elite US special operations fighters, they had years of specialized training by the US military to protect America. But now they were working for a different master: a private US company that had been hired by the United Arab Emirates, a tiny desert monarchy on the Persian Gulf.

On that night, December 29, 2015, their job was to carry out an assassination.

When they arrived at 9:57 at night, all seemed quiet. The men crept out of the SUV, guns at the ready. One carried the explosive charge toward the building. But just as he was about to reach the door, another member of the team opened fire, shooting back along the dimly lit street, and their carefully designed plan went haywire.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Extrajudicial assassinations are non-Constitutional. I don't care how much the legal eagles around President Obama wanted to spin these as legally justifiable in US law, but these hits are not.

The country of Yemen has not attacked us; they have done nothing to cause any distress to the American people. But because President Obama was so close to the Saudi royal family, which wants to see every man woman and child in Yemen dead, he ordered the hit, and ordered it in precisely this manner.

And having these mercs hired by a private firm, so that "plausible deniability" can be created, covering the US and it's military, does not make this right, either.

Targeted assassinations, ultimately ordered by a foreign government, to be carried out by private mercs, consisting of former US military?!?

That was the way Obama loved to do this things; as covertly as possible, and "discouraging" news outlets from covering them at all.

The "cool factor" in his persona, was purely manufactured; and the damage he did, both to this country's reputation, and his personal reputation, will continue to linger and fester for a long time to come.

That, my friends, was the reality under the "Obama Years" in the White House; extrajudicial assassinations overseas, all wrapped up in a pretty American flag.

FLASHBACK - Journalist among 9 killed as '20,000' Palestinians protest at Gaza border

At least nine Palestinians, including a journalist, were killed by Israeli forces on the Gaza border on Friday, as thousands of demonstrators burned tyres and sent towers of thick black smoke billowing over the isolated Mediterranean enclave.

The latest fatalities mean that 31 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli snipers since Gaza residents last week began “the Great March of Return”, a series of weekly border protests demanding the right to return to their ancestral homes in what is today Israel.

ISRAEL, US SECRETLY TRAINED AGAINST RUSSIA’S MISSILE SYSTEM IN UKRAINE

Israel and the US sent secret military delegations to Ukraine to train against the Russian S-300 missile defence system which was shipped to Syria last month.us

The Israeli and US delegations arrived in Ukraine, where members of the Ukrainian military allegedly instructed them on “the capabilities of the [S-300] system, as well as running through various possible scenarios,” the Times of Israel reported.

The claim was first reported by Israel’s Hadashot TV yesterday, which cited Syrian and Russian news outlets as its source. The Times of Israel added that “one Russian report said F-15 planes are training in Ukraine against the S-300 as part of an international exercise that includes Israeli pilots.” Neither Israel nor the US were willing to comment on the reports.

POLICE FOUND EVIDENCE IN SAUDI CONSULATE THAT KHASHOGGI WAS KILLED THERE - TURKISH OFFICIAL TO AP

A Turkish official told AP that police have found evidence inside the Saudi consulate in Istanbul which confirms that journalist Jamal Khashoggi was killed there.
The "high level official" spoke to the AP on the condition of anonymity, but said that police had found "certain evidence"that Khashoggi had died in the building. The official did not provide any more details about the evidence uncovered by police.

Reports in US media on Monday evening suggested that Riyadh might be preparing to admit that Saudi-born Khashoggi was killed as part of an unauthorized interrogation gone wrong.

Khashoggi was last seen entering the consulate on October 2. Turkey has accused Saudi Arabia of murdering the journalist, but Riyadh has denied involvement.

After a phone call with Saudi Arabia’s King Salman on Monday, US President Donald Trump suggested perhaps “rogue killers” had been responsible for the journalist’s disappearance.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

President Trump, a word here, please.

IF the overwhelming evidence indicates that Khashoggi was, in fact, assassinated at the Saudi consulate in Turkey, I would politely suggest that no element of criticism of the Saudi regime, is not countered, nor responded to, except by Prince Bin Salman's orders.

OK, so he ordered a hit on a guy he didn't like that he didn't know would go public, and caused the the global consternation it has caused.

But President Trump, you have to know what you are dealing with here, sir, just as you have had to realize about your other BFF in the Middle East: these are diabolically ruthless men, who control with an iron hand, and who see the elimination of "the enemy" as their only goal, by any brutal means necessary, with utter impunity, and zero consequences.

So, you've dispatched your "Bag Man", Mike Pompeo, to Saudi Arabia, to clean up the stench your Buddy, Prince Bin Salman, made, and "sanitize it" with a cover story, which no one will believe, about this torturous assassination.

Mr. President, We the People realize that this pitiful attempt by this administration to put lipstick on this pig of an act, is only about making sure the weapons companies can continue enjoying their fat bottom lines, by insuring that the weapons flow, unrestricted, to Saudi Arabia, with which they are using to murder Yemeni children, women, and the medically fragile elderly.

Congratulations, Mr. President, on your administration's being "all in" with Bin Salman's torturing critics to death, and killing, starving, and sickening the Yemeni people.

I am very concerned, Mr. President, that what you see Bin Salman and Netanyahu doing in their countries, and beyond, is something you might love to have the power to do here, with complete impunity, and absolutely zero consequences.

THAT, Sir, does worry me... and greatly.

And we have a companion piece, also from blacklistednews.com:

Pompeo's 12 hour flight to Saudi Arabia gave him only a 15 minute meeting with King Salman

It is obvious that Pompeo got his marching orders as to how to spin this, and was thrown out of the royal palaces, like some flunky with whom the Saudi king did not want to spend time, other than for the photoshoot, showing them smiling together.

US, French Forces Plundering Northern Syria's Historical Artifacts, Wealth

The American, French and Washington-backed forces have been excavating historical sites in Manbij region in Northeastern Aleppo to discover and steal the country's artifacts and precious metals, a Syrian media outlet reported on Monday.

The Arabic-language al-Watan daily quoted local sources in Northeastern Aleppo as disclosing that the French and US forces and the Washington-backed militias have excavated a number of historical sites in Manbij, adding that they have sped up their excavation operation after unearthing gold and artifacts.

The daily further said that the US and French forces have found a large volume of gold in Tal Um al-Saraj and Tal al-Sayad in Manbij, adding that they have also discovered an ancient tablet in another excavation operation in an industrial zone in Manbij.

US weapons sales surge by one-third under Trump’s policies

The United States has sold over $55 billion of weapons during the 2018 fiscal year, a sharp year-on-year increase in the wake of President Donald Trump’s push to encourage more US arms sales.

That’s 33 percent more than fiscal year 2017, Trump’s first year in office, when the Pentagon contractors managed to sell almost $42 billion in weapons and military services around the globe, according to the latest report by the Pentagon’s Defense Security Cooperation Agency.

According ding to the report, the Pentagon funded $4.42 billion of the 2018 foreign purchases while an additional $3.52 billion in arms sales was funded by the State Department. The buyers paid for the rest of the sales themselves.

The deals included the sales of a significant number of aircraft and equipment, including Boeing deals to sell surveillance aircraft in Asia and Europe.

U.S. Responsible for 3,300 Civilian Deaths in Syria, Supporting Genocide in Yemen

A new report finds that the U.S is responsible for more than 3,300 civilian deaths in Syria since 2014. Meanwhile, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo continues to back Saudi caused genocide in Yemen.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And by not standing up against this genocide, and simply accepting it as "the cost of doing business, because of the huge profits US weapons sales the military industrial complex is making from their sales to the Saudis", every single one of our alleged Congressional representatives are telling us that We the People do not matter; it's only the huge corporations, which "purchase" them though contributions to their campaigns, which do.

I have to wonder what a forensic audit of all of our Congressional Representatives would reveal, as to who has pocketed the most from the military industrial complex; if that were allowed to happen, I think we'd all be collectively gobsmacked by the numbers.

The word from Chinese negotiators is not at all bleak. Some sort of agreement could be reached on about a third of US demands. Debate on another third could ensue. But the last third is absolutely off-limits – due to Chinese national security imperatives, such as refusing to allow the opening of the domestic cloud computing market to foreign competition.

Will Saudis throw their 'snatch squad' under a bus? Kingdom 'prepares to admit Jamal Khashoggi was killed in a botched interrogation by team who wanted to bundle him out of Turkey'

Saudi Arabia is preparing to admit that journalist Jamal Khashoggi was killed in its consulate, it was reported last night.

But the government will claim he died in a botched interrogation that King Salman and Prince Mohammed did not authorise, sources told CNN.

According to the publication, the Saudi Arabian government is preparing a report which will say Khashoggi was supposed to be taken to the kingdom but died in the consulate during interrogation.

CNN said that two sources had leaked the report, which could change' and is 'still being prepared'.

Last month, WP munitions were also used by two US Air Force (USAF) F-15s in an attack on the town of Hajin in Deir-ez-Zor.

How America Can Repair Its Damaged Relationship With Russia

George Beebe’s recent analysis has presented the policy community with a very useful paradigm for understanding recent alleged actions taken by the Russian special services in a number of Western countries: the Skripal Rorshchach test .

Beebe is referring specifically to the attempted murder of former Russian double agent Sergei Skripal on British soil by use of a Soviet-developed nerve agent that sickened him and his daughter and killed several British citizens - amidst growing evidence of the involvement of officers of Russian military intelligence (the GRU). That case can be broadened to encompass a series of computer hacking/information warfare operations that were uncovered in the last several weeks in the UK, the United States, Canada and the Netherlands, which also have been attributed to the GRU. Now the discussion revolves around whether those who have been accused of taking action were doing so in contravention of or in support of the instructions of the Russian state.

Israeli politicians condemn marriage of Jewish and Muslim celebrities as effort to ‘hurt our state’

On Wednesday, the Israeli-Arab-Muslim TV host Lucy Aharish (the first to host a Hebrew-speaking show) and Israeli-Jewish actor Tzahi Halevy (known from Netflix TV series Fauda), got married.

Their ceremony was what could only be considered unofficial in Israel, at the beach in Hadera. This is because Israeli law does not permit interfaith marriage. The option left to such couples is to conduct an unofficial ceremony in Israel, but do the actual official marriage in another country, where this then gets retroactively recognized by the state. Aharish and Halevy have held the relationship under the radar for some three years, to avoid the backlash – which surely came. Various politicians from the right condemned and bemoaned the marriage.

There has been a lot of pushback on the story from pro-Israel Dems. Rep. Eliot Engel said those new Democrats “need to be educated,” and Jeremy Ben-Ami of J Street wrote to the Times to complain that it had focused on outliers, and missed the story of a “growing majority” of Democrats who support both Israel and Palestine.

Meanwhile Republican supporters of Israel have seized on the article to say that Dems are going off the reservation. “This is an IMPORTANT and chilling read.

Cherokee Nation: Warren's use of DNA test 'inappropriate,' 'wrong'

The Cherokee Nation on Monday afternoon called out Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) for attempting to claim Native American heritage by releasing the results of a DNA test.

The test, conducted by a Stanford University professor Carlos Bustamante, showed that Warren has a Native American ancestor going back six to 10 generations ago, making her somewhere between 1/32nd and 1/1,024th American Indian.

The Cherokee Nation in a statement said using a DNA test to claim connection with a tribal nation is “inappropriate” and “wrong.”

“Using a DNA test to lay claim to any connection to the Cherokee Nation or any tribal nation, even vaguely, is inappropriate and wrong,” said Cherokee Nation Secretary of State Chuck Hoskin Jr. “It makes a mockery out of DNA tests and its legitimate uses while also dishonoring legitimate tribal governments and their citizens, whose ancestors are well documented and whose heritage is proven.”

Elizabeth Warren, Progressive Fraud

My favorite Elizabeth Warren story involves a cookbook. Warren, who was at that time posing as a trailblazing Cherokee, actually contributed recipes to a recipe book with the name, I kid you not, “Pow Wow Chow.” But here’s the best part of the story. She plagiarized some of the recipes. Yes indeed, her version of “pow wow chow” came directly from a famous French chef.

My second-favorite Warren story involves breastfeeding. She once claimed to be the first “nursing mother” to take the New Jersey bar exam, making her, I suppose, the Jackie Robinson of lactating lawyers. The problem? There’s no evidence this is true. Women have been taking the New Jersey bar since 1895, and the New Jersey Judiciary was “not aware” whether they tracked the nursing habits of test-takers.

The set of laws are set to counter influences of foreign intelligence services mainly aimed at Russia and breaking them could get you up to 12 years in jail. The suggested laws would make it illegal to share opinions, news articles or anything that could influence public opinion in any way, if it so happens to coincide with views shared by “foreign intelligence services”, even if it’s related to internal social politics and you weren't aware of it.

Dabaa Nuclear Station on top of Al-Sisi, Putin meeting agenda

The Minister of Electricity and Renewable Energy, Mohamed Shaker, and head of the Nuclear Power Plant Authority Amjad al-Wakeel, will hold a meeting with officials of the Russian company Rosatom on the sidelines of President Abdul Fattah El-Sisi’s visit to Moscow.

Shaker told Daily News Egypt that the operation of the Dabaa nuclear station is proceeding normally, and the project needs time to implement, and denied the reported cancellation of the contract. “Rumours are absolutely untrue. We agreed on a timetable and identified the cost and completed the work on the project,” he stressed.

The meeting will include the follow-up of the current position of the Dabaa Nuclear Plant Project, which is being implemented, and reviewing the characteristics of the project, the specifications of the selection of companies participating in the operational work of the station, as well as setting the timetable for the implementation of the project.

Israel policewoman ‘shot Palestinian for fun’, court hears

The 20-year-old policewoman was arrested yesterday and appeared before Jerusalem Magistrate’s Court in a bail hearing. The court heard that the policewoman allegedly shot an unarmed Palestinian in the back with a sponge-tipped bullet “without any operational reason”, leaving him seriously wounded. The court’s judge, Elad Persky, said the policewoman seemed to have shot the Palestinian “as a dubious form of entertainment”, before ordering that she be held for another three days.

The attack is believed to have occurred in May, while the policewoman was on duty near the Al-Za’im checkpoint, situated near the illegal Israeli settlement of Ma’ale Adumim in the occupied West Bank. However, Israel’s Justice Ministry only learned of the incident recently “while investigating another case in which members of the Border Police allegedly beat a Palestinian for no reason”, Haaretz reported.

Union: Israel ‘systematically’ targeting journalists

Excuses, excuses when the stone-thrower is an Israeli settler and the victim is Palestinian

In 2015, Israel approved a law that stipulated a 20 year prison sentence for individuals caught throwing stones. The intention was to target Palestinians involved in resistance activities, despite the discrepancies between armed Jewish Israeli settlers and Palestinians in terms of weapons available for them to use. “Tolerance towards terrorists ends today,” commented Israeli Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked. “A stone thrower is a terrorist and only a fitting punishment can serve as a deterrent and just punishment.”

Yet despite claiming that Palestinians who throw stones during clashes “provoke” unwarranted violence, stone throwing by Jewish Israeli settler-colonists has many precedents and victims, and is usually overlooked. The latest Palestinian victim of Jewish stone-throwers was Aisha Al-Rabi who was killed last Friday while on her way home in the car. Settlers hurled stones at the family car, killing Aisha and injuring her husband Yacoub.

Israeli fire wounds 32 Palestinians in Gaza beach protest

Gaza's Health Ministry says 32 Palestinians have been wounded by Israeli fire during a mass protest along the beach near the Israeli frontier.

Protesters threw flaming tires over the fence Monday, while fishing boats hoisted Palestinian flags. Israeli forces responded with tear gas and live fire.

The ruling Hamas militant group has been staging border protests for the past six months in hopes of easing a crippling Israeli-Egyptian blockade.

Gaza: The Most Important Story Not Covered in the MSM

The Israelis military is killing kids in the Gaza Strip – like, on the regular. You wouldn’t know it though; not unless you watch the BBC or Al Jazeera, that is. The uncomfortable truth is this: most Americans, frankly, don’t care. Most of the populace and a bipartisan coalition of nearly all policymakers are so reflexively pro-Israel that any critique of Israeli militarism is immediately labeled as anti-Semitism.

Nevertheless, Americans should start paying attention. We in the U.S. are, after all, veritably obsessed with our national security. So much so, indeed, that Washington has waged a perpetual "war on terror" across the Greater Middle East and Africa, restricted some civil liberties, and garrisoned the globe with hundreds of foreign military bases. The problem is that none of this expeditionary military action has made the homeland safer or lessened the appeal of violent jihadi Islam.

Few Democrats Offer Alternatives to War-Weary Voters

Chants of "No More War" from delegates at the 2016 Democratic National Convention gave voice to sentiments that still resonate through the base of the party and the broad U.S. public, notably in communities with higher rates of military sacrifice.

While Trump’s 2016 victories in swing states may well have been aided by his posing as a foe of protracted war, his administration’s Mideast policies have largely exposed that masquerade. Unfortunately, the weak and confused positions of Democratic leaders on endless war and bloated military spending offer little alternative to war-weary voters.

Well this isn’t hypothetical. The Niger forgeries are a clear case of deception. One cannot accidentally sign documents with a name of an obsolete foreign minister. Its clear that these were fraudulent and that they were being used as war propaganda. Who am I supposed to go to with this information? The president? He didn’t care. The press? They don’t care. In fact the press still hasn’t clearly reported on it even after the fact.

SYRIAN WAR REPORT – OCTOBER 16, 2018: IDLIB DEMILITARIZATION ZONE AGREEMENT REACHES ITS FIRST DEADLINE

On October 15, a first deadline in the roadmap for implementation of the Idlib demilitarization agreement passed. According to this agreement, militant groups had to withdraw all their heavy weaponry and equipment from the declared 15-20km deep zone and halt any actions against Syrian government forces. By October 20, all members of radical militant groups, like Hayat Tahrir al-Sham and its allies have to withdraw from the area.

Turkish media has already claimed that all heavy weaponry had been withdrawn by the so-called opposition. Nonetheless, recent rocket and mortar strikes on government targets in northern Hama and southwestern Aleppo show that this is at least partly untrue. Furthermore, Hayat Tahrir al-Sham and other radicals are not hurrying to abandon their positions. The situation is developing.

Northbound migrant group doubles in size, enters Guatemala

Up to 3,000 migrants crossed from Honduras into Guatemala on Monday on a trek northward, after a standoff with police in riot gear and warnings from Washington that migrants should not try to enter the United States illegally.

The crowd more than doubled in size from Saturday, when some 1,300 people set off from northern Honduras in what has been dubbed "March of the Migrant," an organizer said. The migrants plan to seek refugee status in Mexico or pass through to the United States.

Reuters could not independently verify the number of participants, but images showed a group carrying backpacks and clogging roads near the border, some waving the Honduran flag.

Why Open Borders Are Bad For America’s Immigrants

Immigration has long been one of the hottest topics in America with no agreed upon policy solutions. We are often presented with one of two polarized choices. The first favors an open borders policy, where the free flow of migrants across our borders is welcomed and amnesty is granted to those who previously crossed the border unlawfully. The second option would seal the border, perhaps with a “wall,” and find and hunt down all illegal immigrants and deport them.

The election of Donald Trump, who clearly leans towards that second choice, has forced a needed argument about immigration. We can disagree on the tactics and the rhetoric Trump uses about immigration, but he has certainly compelled the nation to have the discussion and has moved the nation – including Congress – as close as it’s been to taking some kind of action to remedy this long standoff.

TSA Announces “biometrics vision for all commercial aviation travelers”

Homeland Security was explicit in their 18-page memo from June 2017 that “the only way for an individual to ensure he or she is not subject to collection of biometric information when traveling internationally is to refrain from traveling.” Now, according to a new “Biometric Roadmap” from the TSA, detailed below by The Identity Project, we can see the level of commitment to accelerating incremental enforcement for all domestic and international air travel (“notional phased approach” in TSA-speak). Of course when it comes to the TSA, airports may not be the final destination. Biometric ID is already spreading from planes, to trains, to events and to conferences.

North and South Korea agree to reconnect roads and railways

North and South Korean delegations met Monday and reached a number of agreements to further the thaw in relations between Pyongyang and Seoul. Chief among them is a plan to reconnect roads and railways severed when the Korean Peninsula was split in half by war more than half a century ago.

Russian-US consultations on North Korea to be held in Moscow on October 16

Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Igor Morgulov has said he will held a meeting with US Special Representative for North Korea Stephen Biegun in Moscow on October 16.

"Tomorrow, I will have a meeting with US Special Representative for North Korean Stephen Biegun," he told reporters on Monday. "We will hold a full round of consultations on the situation on the Korean Peninsula."

In September, Morgulov and Biegun had a phone conversation, during which they agreed to continue the dialogue between Moscow and Washington on a settlement on the Korean Peninsula.

North Korea’s economic growth – from Pyongyang’s perspective

Has North Korea’s economy been growing under sanctions? That’s what an economist in Pyongyang claims. In a recent interview with Kyodo (published here by Japan Times), Ri Gi Song at Pyongyang’s Institute of Economics at the Academy of Social Sciences, claimed that North Korea’s GDP per capita grew by 3.7 percent in 2017, a year during which the country was virtually banned from selling its most crucial export goods, and faced very harsh conditions for importing crucial resources such as oil and fuel. When factoring in population growth, the GDP-growth-figure diminishes somewhat to 3.2% (see below), but it’s still firmly in the same range.

North Korea - South Korea diplomacy flourishes, but what about Kim Jong Un's nukes?

North and South Korea continued their push for peace Monday with high-level talks that resulted in a host of agreements, including a plan by the rivals for a groundbreaking ceremony this year on an ambitious project to connect their railways and roads. The agreements come amid unease in Washington over the speed of inter-Korean engagement.

Many outsiders believe that U.S.-led efforts to rid North Korea of its nuclear-tipped missiles are lagging significantly behind the Koreas' efforts to move past decades of bitter rivalry.

US diplomat headed to Moscow for North Korea meeting

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s top envoy for North Korea will travel to Moscow for meetings this week about the denuclearization process, officials with both sides confirmed Monday.

"We will hold a full round of consultations on the situation on the Korean Peninsula,” Russian deputy foreign minister Igor Morgulov said Monday, according to state-run TASS.

Stephen Biegun, the U.S. special representative for North Korea, will stop in Moscow Tuesday before heading west to Paris and Brussels. His trip comes on the heels of a separate summit Morgulov hosted with North Korean and Chinese diplomats, which saw the two Eastern powers back the pariah state’s call for sanctions relief in the midst of negotiations over North Korea’s nuclear weapons and ballistic missile programs.

Believe Women: Apply Congress' Christine Blasey Ford Test to TSA’s Female Victims

In the uproar over Christine Blasey Ford’s allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, many members of Congress declared that women have a “right to be believed.” Unfortunately, Congress is ignoring legions of women who have been sexually abused thanks to the immunity Congress provides to federal agents. But a federal appeals court may grant relief despite Washington’s negligence.

Congress gives the Transportation Security Administration almost $8 billion a year and does nothing to constrain how TSA’s 43,000 screeners treat American travelers. A Justice Department lawyer insisted last year that there’s no law “establishing a specific degree of permissible intrusiveness of a (TSA) security screening pat-down.” Americans have no legal recourse regardless of how TSA’s screeners treat them, thus explaining why TSA pat-downs become more intrusive.

Why Liberal Jews in Israel and the US have made Lara Alqasem a Cause Celebre

An American student of Palestinian descent detained in Israel’s airport for nearly a fortnight has become an unexpected cause celebre. Lara Alqasem was refused entry under legislation passed last year against boycott activists, and Israeli courts are now deciding whether allowing her to study human rights at an Israeli university threatens public order.

Usually those held at the border are swiftly deported, but Ms Alqasem appealed against the decision, becoming in the process an improbable “prisoner of conscience” for the boycott cause.

The Israeli government, led by strategic affairs minister Gilad Erdan, claims that the 22-year-old is a leader of the growing international boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) movement. Activists like Ms Alqasem, he argues, demonise Israel.

2020: Strategist: Advisers Telling Hillary She Can Win Nom. if Biden Doesn’t Run

Top Democrats close to Hillary Clinton are reportedly telling her to keep her 2020 options open in case former Vice President Joe Biden passes on challenging President Donald Trump.

On Monday’s Hardball on MSNBC, Steve McMahon, a top Democratic strategist, said that “some people close to the Clintons and close to Hillary Clinton who look at the field and think if Joe Biden doesn’t run, it’s an awfully weak field and someone like Hillary Clinton could get back in.”

He added that some of these confidants are “whispering in her ear” that she might be able to win the nomination if Biden decides not to run.

Making America Socialist Again

It’s not often that the president of the United States writes an op-ed for a major newspaper. But this is exactly what President Trump did on October 10 in USA Today.

Trump was railing against (and rightly so) the Democrats’ “Medicare for All” (S.1804) proposal to “establish a government-run, single-payer health care system that eliminates all private and employer-based health care plans” and will “cost an astonishing $32.6 trillion during its first 10 years.”

Bezos says Amazon will work with DoD; says US in ‘big trouble’ without ‘big tech’ companies

Amazon founder Jeff Bezos has distinguished his company from other big tech firms in declaring its willingness to work with the United States Department of Defense.

“If big tech companies are going to turn their back on the US Department of Defense, this country is going to be in trouble,” Bezos cautioned in San Francisco Monday at an event celebrating the 25th anniversary of the tech magazine Wired.

Amazon is bidding for a 10-year contract with the Defense Department known as the Joint Enterprise Defense Infrastructure project, JEDI, to offer cloud computing services worth up to $10 billion.

“We are going to continue to support the DoD, and I think we should,” Bezos said.

Report: Senate candidate Krysten Sinema invited ‘prominent group of feminist witches’ to protest Iraq War

Rep. Kyrsten Sinema, the Democratic nominee for U.S. Senate, is not a witch. But she has been known to hang out with witches. It was during the height of the Iraq War when Sinema, then a far-left protest organizer, summoned supernatural help to stop the Iraq War.

Emails obtained by the Washington Examiner show Sinema inviting a prominent group of feminist witches in Arizona called Pagan Cluster to celebrate International Women’s Day and to protest the war in March of 2003. Code Pink protesters wore pink, obviously enough, and the Women in Black wore black. But Sinema encouraged the witches to wear “colorful clothing and come ready to dance, twirl, and stay in touch with your inner creativity and with the Earth.”

It’s telling that Code Pink wasn’t even the weirdest group there to celebrate International Women’s Day. It takes a lot to outdo that bunch.

But wait … there’s more!

Sessions vows ’emergency’ Supreme Court battles amid ‘outrageous’ discovery rulings by federal judges

Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Monday lit into federal judges for what he called a dramatic uptick in “outrageous” decisions threatening to interfere with the separation of powers by exposing internal White House deliberations.

In a fiery speech to the conservative Heritage Foundation in Washington, Sessions warned that “once we go down this road in American government, there is no turning back.” He vowed to take “these discovery fights to the Supreme Court in emergency postures. … We intend to fight this, and we intend to win.”

Sessions specifically singled out New York district court judge Jesse M. Furman, who ruled that Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross could be questioned in an ongoing lawsuit concerning the legality of the Trump administration’s decision to add a citizenship question to the 2020 census.

Democrats poised to make historic impeachment push, after dust from midterms settles

Democrats are increasingly whispering about the possibility of impeaching President Trump if they regain control of the House of Representatives in November, even as top Republicans openly suggest the move would backfire politically.

The wait-and-see approach to drafting articles of impeachment comes as voter pressure from the base rises. A late-August Washington Post-ABC poll found nearly 50 percent of Americans support immediate impeachment proceedings against the president. Four in 10 residents of Ohio, which Trump carried in the 2016 presidential election, said this week that the House should consider impeaching Trump, according to a Suffolk University poll.

'We built it to survive the big one': Owners of the only Florida home still standing on a stretch of beach after Hurricane Michael say they went above and beyond the building codes

The owners of the only home still standing on a stretch of a Florida beach after Hurricane Michael tore through say they built it to survive the 'big one'.

Dr Lebron Lackey and his uncle Russell King built the vacation home known as Sand Palace last year at Mexico Beach where the Category 4 hurricane made landfall with 155mph winds last week.

Remarkable aerial photos that emerged after the hurricane show the home still standing, while neighboring properties were reduced to rubble or completely swept away by storm surge.

Disturbing School Assignment Is A Sign Of Things To Come

We are all aware of the global progressive agenda pushed on the youngest of children, and now we have a shocking new look into what kids in the U.K. are learning.

Bewsey Lodge Primary School in Warrington, England just released a video they were quite proud of.

The topic? Kindergarten-aged children being forced to write “love letters” between an imaginary same-sex couple to promote “tolerance” and “diversity.”

One teacher explained the assignment by stating: “This class of 6-year-olds is learning about gay marriage. In this fairy tale, the prince wants to marry his [male] servant. And the children are writing a love letter,” as reported by The Blaze.

Biological MAN wins women’s world championship cycling event by simply saying he’s a woman – and if you disagree, you’re a bigot

Can’t seem to get into your favorite college? Just say you’re a minority. Need a scholarship you don’t qualify for? Just claim to fit the profile. Want to compete in any female-only event that requires leg or arm strength and endurance to win? Just say you’re a woman and you’re in! In fact, American cyclist Jennifer Wagner and Dutch cyclist Carolien Van Herrikhuyzen just got robbed of their silver and gold medals thanks to Rachel McKinnen doing just that. You don’t even have to suppress testosterone to compete anymore. Welcome to the national “trans” society of cross-over sports.

If you happen to think this isn’t fair, then you are lumped in the category with white people who didn’t think it was fair for blacks to have rights either. That’s right, if you don’t respect men who beat women in the Olympics by simply saying they’re a woman, then you’re a racist who has no concept of human rights.
